R62A 1716, 2067 with New Rollsigns

Recommended Posts

I saw 1716 and 2067 on the (7) today with new rollsigns. I know 1716 was a single car, and 2067 I think was just part of a 5-car set on the same train (it could have been a single unit from another train, but I think I only observed that one train).

 

The new rollsigns say the same thing as the old ones, but now the letters are larger and "Main Street-Flushing, Queens" and "Times Square, Manhattan" are each on just one line of text. Also the dash in Main Street-Flushing may actually be comma now, and 1716 might have just said "Main Street, Flushing" without the "Queens" part.

1716 is in a set with 1716-1720, and 2067 is a single car. There are several R62As with that rollsign format (2465 comes to mind-- I remember that had that single line roll for over 10 years.)

 

There are several cars that don't mention "Queens" with Main Street, Flushing. IIRC, 1666 is one of them.

Many of the rollsigns have the text o two lines, others have it on one. As you see () trains pass by you see thatthey can be intermixed on trains.
